understands how things work. He’s very intelligent. He understands that he can’t be popular because he’s the new kid. He understands that his family had to move so far from their extended family so that his mother, the author, could research. Jackson also understands that it will take a while for him to become a great writer.
What he doesn’t understand is how he can be touring his Great Aunt Harriet’s hair. A Tour of Hair?! Jackson realized that her hair was exceeding large when she hid a puppy in it during a tornado but tour large? No way. To top that off, elves live in her hair! He just couldn’t believe it when he fell in and saw the elf with the stinky fish offering him a tour.
Now, if Jackson can only find a way out of Great Aunt Harriet’s hair and find something to write about.
The best part? The Chapter Titles: Chapter 28. – A Chapter with Lots of Shrieking (Perhaps You Should Put in Earplugs before Continuing). You see? The kids loved it!
No, it was the short and sweet chapters. No, it must have been the fun way Jackson relates his story. Or possibly the way he defines uncommon (for ten year olds, at least) words in the simplest ways.
What a wonderful book! Thanks to Zondervan for the wonderful freebie! We’ll be grabbing the rest of this series! (The Tale of a Boy, a Troll, and a Rather Large Chicken is due out in September 2011 — Grab them both!)
